ABOUT USACTING TODAY FOR
CLEAN WATER TOMORROW.

Captains For Clean Water is a grassroots 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that advocates for the elimination of harmful, large-scale Lake Okeechobee discharges into the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie River Estuaries by restoring the natural flow of Lake Okeechobee water south into the Everglades and Florida Bay. Restoring the natural southern flow of Lake Okeechobee water is essential to the survival of our estuaries, the health of the Everglades, and the long-term viability of South Florida’s largest drinking water source (the Biscayne Aquifer).

Captains For Clean Water was founded in 2016 by a group of fishing guides and outdoorsmen from Fort Myers, FL that had enough of Florida’s poor water management practices. Given the destruction they’d seen firsthand, they were convinced that if everyone knew what they knew, the problem would have already been fixed. The solution to this problem has been delayed for decades because our state’s lawmakers have enjoyed large-scale campaign contributions from agricultural corporations seeking to benefit from the status quo, combined with a lack of public awareness.

We’re here to fix that.
